  • Useless means unemployable and bad return of investment. Not actually useless by definition. Ppl just get triggered coz they don’t get the point, they just spent 100,000 learning art history and can’t get a job that pays more than $40,000 a year. Their problem.

  • Chemistry, physics, mathematics, pharmacy, nursing, biology, engineering, and education. Those are some of the degrees worth having. Basically any of the sciences, although I included education because I believe that's essential to educating young people. Gender studies and all that crap is not going to prepare students for anything. It's so un-scientific and biased that it's actually worse than useless.

  • More and more this is what our tax dollars are going to. I'm OK with colleges having them, but people should pay for this kind of silliness with their own money for their personal enrichment after they've gotten a degree that actually pays their bills instead of using my money to get these degrees and then living off of my money because they can't find a job.

  • I just graduated in Foreign Languages (English & French Linguistics, Philology and Literature were one of the subjects I took ) so now I was thinking of taking a master course in Art History but I'd like to study something related to the Manangement of Art Works. I'm Italian by the way but I'd like to study this subject in English.

  • Philosophy on that list? The mother of all sciences and knowledge? I can see that someone is spending too much time on memes. If you had a little grasp what philosophy is you woulddelete this video…I can feel embarrassment as I watch it. You are very misguided…
    the point of philosophy is not. getting you money…for that reaspn you can go and study some basic form of management which any stupid idiot can graduate. And then you can have your money and "happy" mediocre. so called life which is based on capitalist notion of happiness.

  • Is Environmental Studies a useless degree? I am passionate about Environmental issues, however, due to some poor decisions and financial reasons, I cannot afford to take the math classes and physics classes required to pursue Environmental Science, So I thought I would try environmental studies, which incorporates science and humanities.

  • I absolutely agree with gender studies as the most useless College degree as it doesn't make any biological sense. I had to study biology in the past 3 studies throughout my secondary school education. I had to get an education in Ireland because my dad is Irish

  • lol… Art history. At least with art classes you are learning a skill. I suppose one could argue art history would be useful for determining the validity of ancient art and preventing forgeries….

  • Philosophy is arguably THE most important topic there is in life. I think you should have prefaced your list with the premise that the only important degrees to seek are those that make a lot of money. That's a pretty shallow and immature approach.

  • If you get into Harvard via affirmative action and aren't a science genius, it's pretty much guaranteed you'll be shunted into one of these foofy liberal arts degrees that require no academic rigor. Guar-an-teed.

  • The humanities have become largely irrelevant not because Plato and Shakespeare are suddenly past their expiration dates, but because university humanities departments have become thoroughly dominated by social justice warriors, with the institutions who employ them acting as willing accomplices.

  • Typically, any degree in liberal arts, those in humanities and other non business or technology based degrees are for the most part, not marketable in the business world.
    A few years ago then Governor of North Carolina drew the ire of NC University system spokes people when he made comments regarding what he quipped as "useless degrees". The reaction was swift and severe.
    These spokes people vehemently defended their "turf".
    Each year, US Colleges and Universities award nearly one million undergraduate degrees. That creates intense competition for a relatively small number of available jobs.
    The consequence is many college grads find acquiring employment at the corporate level( read white collar) nearly impossible to achieve.

  • #2) Golf Management is not so far fetched.  My friend's son recently graduated from a college in New York (don't remember which one) with a degree in something like Sport's Venue Management.  The last I heard, he is now in charge of all the food vendors at Yankee Stadium.  I guess somebody has to keep track of how many hotdogs, pretzels, bags of peanuts they sell per game; or how much beer they sell in a season.

  • Realistically every degree is pointless, true some more pointless than others…

    A degree does not prove you are smart, it does not prove you are more knowledgeable in a specific subject. The only thing it actually does prove is that either you or your parents were financially secure enough to put you through a few extra years of school.
